I downloaded the iphoto info.
It appears on my desktop but when I double click
the file doesn't appear.
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
When you double click on it, a folder 'iPhoto' will be created on desktop. You can see iPhoto application in that folder.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The folder does not appear
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
You can do a Archive and Install. Archive and Install will not remove any of your files,applications, settings etc. It just replaces the system files with new one, so it'll put your iPhoto back.

I want you to do Archive and Install. You can do Archive and Install with the Mac OS X discs.

  1. Start up from your Mac OS X Install Disc 1 or Install DVD. Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C.)
  2. Select your language. The Welcome to the Mac OS X Installer window appears.
  3. Click Continue. The Important Information window appears.
  4. After reading or printing the information, click Continue. The Software License Agreement window appears.
  5. After reading or printing the information, click Continue.
  6. An agreement sheet appears. If you agree with the license agreement, click Agree. The Select a Destination window appears.
  7. Click the volume that you wish to install to.
  8. Click Options. The installation options sheet appears.
  9. Select Archive and Install.
  10. Select the volume which already has Mac OS X installed.
  11. You should also select Preserve Users and Network Settings, to preserve network and Home directory settings.
  12. Click OK.
  13. Click Continue to begin the installation.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Hi, it's me again.
I was able to drag I Photo onto my desktop, but it won't let me open it.
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
I'm very sorry for the delay...apologies. Did you tried Archive and Install ?

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
